Match build-up

 

The final round will sort things out in the group as nothing is clear there yet. Shakhtar lost twice to Monchengladbach, but defeated Real Madrid in both legsalso tying with Inter in Kyiv. The Miners can and should qualify for the Champions League round of 16 - to do so, they need to win in Milan. A draw will be sufficient only if Real Madrid do not beat Gladbach at home.

 

After the previous Champions League match, Luis Castro's team demolished Minaj 5-1 in the Ukrainian Championship. One of the goals was scored by Fernando, then he got injured in one of the challenges and will miss the game in Italy. Junior Moraes is also injured. Dentinho will spearhead Shakhtar's attacks in case he fully recovers, Bohdan Viunnymay also appear thereplus there might be a third less predictable choice.

 

YesterdayShakhtar trained on the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza pitch. The forty-minute session was held in the rain, with about the same weather being expected today. At the pre-match press conferenceLuis Castro and Taisonspoke about the preparations for the upcoming game and the team's targets.

 

Opponents

 

To reach the Round of 16, Inter needs just to claim a victory over Shakhtar. Antonio Conte's men continue competing thanks to the fact that they proved stronger inMonchengladbach against Borussia (2-3), with Darmian having netted the opener, and Lukaku having grabbed a brace in the second half. Plus in each of the last two meetings in Serie A, the Nerazzurri scored three goals - vs Sassuolo (3-0) and Bologna (3-1).
